Visited on a weekday afternoon earlier in March as part of my planned session on North Parade. I have been before but was looking forward to a return visit. At the bar were four hand pumps for cask, all of which were available, plus 7 keg options. I concentrated on the cask options and had the Equanot Session IPA by Kirkstall which was rather pleasant, and a bitter called Monument (can't remember who that was by). There was a 9% imperial stout, which had me tempted, and of course I ended up giving in to temptation! Nice mix of styles to choose from. I do like it in here but sometimes I find the wooden tables and chairs to be a bit too café style - but the small tables probably mean they can fit more people in so can't complain too much. I don't think they do food but they have an arrangement with a local pizza place where they will place orders for you and they deliver it to your table. Definitely worth including on any visit to North Parade.

The Sparrow is a newish bar that was converted from a shop.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room with the bar facing,the floor is bare boarded,the seating normal tables and chairs.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Raw Winter Solstice which went down very well,the other beers noted were Great Heck Washington Red,Great Heck Shanknar and one from Tyne Bank brewery.
The pub was fairly busy just after 11am with drinkers,i also had a chat with a friendly barmaid.
The background music was different but i quite liked it.
I thought this was a very pleasant bar to have a drink in.
